Duke student Steven Li of the Duke University Dept. of Theater Studies will act in his own play, The Miles as his senior distinction project. The Miles will run Feb. 14-16, 2013 in Brody Theater on Duke's East Campus.

The Miles tells the story of the disruption of the lives of married couple Sam and Emma when an old friend shows up from the past. The one act examines the nature of love, duty and desire and what happens when they collide.

The work of musician Sara Bareilles inspired Li to write his play. "Part of the allure of music is that a song can come out of the blue, on the radio or a friend's playlist, and evoke a sense of kindred spirit," says Li. "I felt like I shared that kind of special connection with Bareilles. Her music served as an initial springboard for this project. Weaving her music into the text was simultaneously difficult and effortless. Over time, as the play developed, music and text became inseparable. Now, I can't imagine this play without her music as an intrinsic part of the text.
